    TULSA – The Tulsa District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Regional Planning and Environmental Center, USACE have assessed environmental impacts of the proposed 2020 Lake Texoma Shoreline Management Plan revision and determined the action will have “no significant impact” on the reservoir’s resources or habitats.

    According to the Tulsa District’s “Finding of no significant impact” letter, available on the Tulsa District website and in the USACE Headquarters Library:

    - No compensatory mitigation is required

    - Environmental assessment and FONSI will be complete by January 2, 2021

    - The SMP revision will have no effect on species listed in the Endangered Species Act of 1973

    - All relevant environmental laws have been considered and agency coordination is complete

    According to the FONSI letter, public review of the draft SMP, environmental assessment, and FONSI will be completed by January 2, 2021.

    The Tulsa District will respond to all comments submitted during the public review period in the final SMP and EA.

    The revised shoreline management plan process provides for federal and state agency and public coordination. The revision will reflect USACE rule changes made since 1996. The Lake Texoma SMP was last updated or incorporated in 1996.

    Tulsa District and RPEC assessed the impacts of the proposed revision in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 and regulations of 40 Code of Federal Regulations, Parts 1500-1508 and guidelines in 33 CFR Part 230.

    Shoreline management plans establish USACE policy and guidelines in order to protect natural resources and preserve desirable environmental characteristics of the shoreline while attempting to balance public and private shoreline use.
